A Master of Mysteries


Published November 7, 2007


Librivox recording of A Master of Mysteries by L. T. Meade and Robert Eustace.
Read by J. M. Smallheer.

"It so happened that the circumstances of fate allowed me to follow my own bent in the choice of a profession. From my earliest youth the weird, the mysterious had an irresistible fascination for me. Having private means, I resolved to follow my unique inclinations, and I am now well known to all my friends as a professional exposer of ghosts, and one who can clear away the mysteries of most haunted houses....I propose in these pages to relate the histories of certain queer events, enveloped at first in mystery, and apparently dark with portent, but, nevertheless, when grappled with in the true spirit of science, capable of explanation." - from the Introduction to "A Master of Mysteries"

Subject: Does this remind anyone else of Johnathan Creek?
It's similar, in that there's a man who debunks supernatural murders. Generally the villains are dab hands at engineering.

Subject: Good stories
These stories involve a man who investigates what seem to be supernatural mysteries. The language is a bit stagey to modern ears, but if you're familiar with the genre, you'll enjoy it. The characters speak in an exaggerated formallity that makes them all sound literary rather than conversational. Personally, I find it to be part of the charm. The stories themselves kept me engaged, and the reader was satisfactory. Not professional, but this is Librivox, so what do you expect. At least it isn't one of those English as a second language people. A English Victorian story told be a person with a Norwegian accent just doesn't work for me.
